  1. We rented a golf cart, was nice because it rained hard the first day of 2-gun Nationals and drizzled the next day. Kept us along with guns & gear dry. Range is top notch and even after hurricane downpour the bays drained and no mud. Footing was excellent. gerritm
  2. It's on a 14.5 JP barrel that she loves. Have one on mine with JP tactical comp installed by them and absolutely the best barrel I have had. Eats any ammo and is super accurate. Couldn't find one other than this used one with the comp attached. Really want to keep it. Going to shoot a couple of more matches with it to decide. gerritm
  3. Thanks, still deciding on whether to remove it. gerritm
  4. Wish I had a mill or access to one. Trying not to use one or chase a local GS down.. Anyone on BE that can do this? gerritm
  5. Want to change a comp on a JP 9mm 14.5" barrel that is I am assuming is pinned & welded. Was not done by JP as it is not their comp and I have one that they did. Can see the single weld not sure if there is a pin under it as I bought it used. Better to use a die grinder and work slowly thru the weld or use a drill. Would be worried about drilling too deep and damaging the threads, gerritm
  6. After shooting this for about a month, here is what we have found. This 9mm PCC comp actually works. With the adjustable segments you can get what gasses are available to have a certain amount of down force & movement. After playing with it I got it from torqueing the barrel right & down to a neutral push back and no dipping of the red dot. This is by using the different segments in sequence and experimenting with your load. Now for the cons. It is on the heavy side. Not bad, but you know it is there. Seems to collect carbon & lead. I have had to clean it after every couple of hundred rounds and this is even after using factory ammo. It is fairly easy to clean, by removing the end and segments and then cleaning the ports. Segments don't seem to have any build up. Zero doesn't change after disassembly and reassembly. Might be interesting to try on a 5.56. They are available in several different calibers. gerritm
  7. Follow up on this. Completely disassembled the PCC. Cleaned everything. Checked firing pin & BCG. All seemed good. Dry fired trigger & function checked, with no issues. Took it to the range Sunday to test & 3 shots in CMC PCC trigger froze/locked up totally like the safety was on. Took it home and apart and 2 pieces of the blown case came out of the trigger housing. Blew them out with high pressure brake clean, 1 piece was about a 1/4 in size and totally flat, other was about an 1/8". Murphy's law, the pieces will find the worst spot to jam. Function checked it again with dry fire and will test tonight. gerritm
  8. We run CMC PCC triggers in 2 and Timney in another. All 3 have Taccom extreme or SS BCG's. Just ran a batch of CCI SR magnum primers with no issues. gerritm
  9. Had a case blowout of my son's PCC last Sunday. Blew the 42 round Glock mag out of the magwell. Pretty sure it was an Xtreme brass case without the step. Case broke into 3 pieces. Bullet was just slightly into barrel & fell out with almost no pressure with squib rod so know all force went back & out. Front of case was stuck in chamber. Had to remove with a tap. Found the middle ring of case on ground and never did find the base with headstamp. I have had this happen before with Xtreme and cull the cases. He forgot when he loaded these rounds. Have had a bunch in this range brass. No damage to PCC, mag, or BCG that I can tell. Few slight marks on his arm. Glad it was a blow back and not one of our pistols. gerritm
  10. I am blind in my right eye. So shoot left eye/handed. When classifier or stage calls for weak hand I switch to my right side and hold the PCC off my shoulder just enough to still be able to see the dot. Sometimes on hard right hand leans I will do this. Have practiced it in dry fire and although slow it does work. gerritm
  11. Mine looked good, wasn't sure how many rounds were on it. Was still plenty accurate. Just wanted to make sure. I coated the new one with light coat of hi-temp grease to make sure it would come out in the future. gerritm
  12. Just put a CGW 10X bushing on my CZ75 SP01 with a threaded barrel. Couldn't knock out the bushing like you did because the threaded barrel will not come out without removing the bushing first. Managed to work it out from the front and installed the new bushing by seating it with a socket. Shoots great. Hopefully the rain will stop. gerritm
  13. I worked for several years in a very good gun store. Mostly for hunting. The way I sold scopes, lower price & high end was to see what their budget was and to bring several outside for them to look at an item in the distance and decide what they like. In a large sports store just looking across the building as far away as possible will work. Rather than recommending a particular brand. Every ones eyes are different and what looks great to one person may not work for another. I found that several lower priced scopes looked excellent to my customer compared to the more expensive. gerritm
  14. Funny thing is I started shooting PCC before it was official USPSA division. I went thru many different configurations and barrels and it was always the same problem with feeding issues creating double feeds. Learn not to rack it just drop the mag out, shake the double feed out, reinsert mag and go on. Got pretty good with it. When the Taccom feed ramp first came out I installed it my upper and these all went away. Same with the Taccom barrels with the built in feed ramp. Been running these for many years now with basically zero malfunctions. Reliability is the key with all guns in our sport. Now run 3 PCC's this way and especially my granddaughters need to run perfect. gerritm
  15. They correct the geometry & differences in the way the Glock mag sits in the lower. Do you need them, not necessarily but then everyone isn't shooting a $2K JP that is matched and fitted. My 3 home builds cost about $1K each and 2 have JP barrels and other has a Taccom super feed with a built in ramp. 3 different brand lowers, 2 are matched billet, and 1-NFA, & uppers, all quality names. Before the Taccom feed ramps my JP barrels ran 98% with maybe 1 misffeed/double feed out of every couple of hundred rounds. With ramp 100%. Just 1 more inexpensive insurance for reliability. I have recommended them to several shooting buddies and they all swear by them. gerritm
  16. Glock feed ramps are the best $20 you will ever spend for reliability. Have made our 3 PCCs with many rounds 100% as long as my reloads work. Factory ammo is 100%. gerritm
  17. Do you have a thumb rest? This will help stabilize your grip and the dot. gerritm
  18. Anyone use one on 9mm? Kind of heavy. Got a used pinned & welded JP 9mm Super Match 14.5" 9mm barrel with a Rage Tactical adjustable comp attached. I have one on my PCC with the JP tactical comp. Knowing that most comps don't do much with fast powders and having shot open 9/38S and tuned several AR comps I am familiar with how they work. This was setup up with max downforce, only got to zero it this weekend due to weather, but it shot dead on at 15 yards, but couldn't really shoot enough to see how it works. Will shoot a match this weekend. Any advice? Is it just a muzzle weight? gerritm
  19. 337 starting in 2014. Doesn't count another 50 or so that don't show up there. Plus the ones when we used paper, before PS. Not just USPSA, includes 3-gun, 2-gun, shotgun, .22, & Steel Challenge. gerritm
  20. So if I'm reading this right, setting up the stage they don't nail down the fault line, create a tripping hazard, and then penalize the shooter when it happens. Something wrong here. I call BS. Slipping in an indoor range on the concrete happens quite often. Between brass and dust/powder/oil covered slick concrete I have seen this happen many times.. gerritm
  21. I have basically the same setup on 2 different CZ's and use RHT holsters. All I did was use a good hot hair dryer or heat gun and heat the area up where the thumb rest goes and shove it in and let cool. After doing it a couple of times it will mold a channel and draw & insert perfect with a little adjustment of the retaining screws. No grinding necessary. gerritm
  22. This. I don't know where you shoot, but here in the Houston area we never go off the way you either signed up, were squadded, or alphabetical. We always do a random mix and ask if newer shooters are comfortable going early or need to move down. If you do go first you will rotate on next stage to last. This is supposed to be fun and a game. Major matches you are kinda stuck. Between watching other experienced shooters run the stage & taping & resetting you will get a good plan figured out. Tough part is sticking to it when the "neuralizer" goes off. gerritm
  23. We usually put the newer shooters down the list and this doesn't help if you are first couple up, but I have learned that taping & resetting the stage as many times as possible gives me a heads up on my stage plan because you see all the hidden targets & positions. gerritm
  24. Everglades has some different 9MM & 40 in stock and shipping is free. gerritm
